Welcome to Global Primary Academy!
Global Primary Academy is a PK-3 Internationally-focused school that is a part of the Global Schools on the Broadway Campus. This small school gives teachers the time, space, and support to dive into content standards and focus on PK-3 academic success, with a heavy focus on early literacy. A student’s ownership of learning begins on day one, with opportunities to connect their learning to their community and world. The building was designed to bridge the comforts of home with the wonders of nature, to help our students become brave and curious learners. GPA is also home to the youngest Student Council in Mapleton! GPA students make seamless transitions to GIA for grades 4-8, and GLA, for grades 9-12.
